Images from MU's centennial Homecoming celebrations and the Humans vs. Zombies competition were among last week's best photos from Missourian staff.

Photographer Benjamin Zack took this photo of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and Delta Tau Delta fraternity members, who are waiting to go on stage at the beginning of their Homecoming skit on Monday at Jesse Auditorium. The two houses created an Olympics-themed skit to compete with other sororities and fraternities during Homecoming week.

In this photo by Katie Currid, French student Matthieu Jeavons of Team Nyan Cat scouts for zombies during the 500-player Humans vs. Zombies game Monday near Jesse Hall. The game, a campuswide version of moderated tag that's been an MU tradition since 2009, began Oct. 4 and concluded Tuesday.

Robson Abbott photographed this image of Allies in Action members and Versailles Mennonite Church singers, who shared space at noon Tuesday at MU's Speakers Circle.

Here's another photo from Currid of the Main Attraction Dance Team performers at the National Pan-Hellenic Council Step Show on Saturday at Plaza 900 Amphitheater. NPHC organizations and dance teams gathered to perform for alumni and fellow students — a tradition of MU's Black Homecoming.


Photographer Zack also took this shot along the lines of the parade route Saturday morning. The balloon-bedecked onlookers arrived early to wait for the MU Homecoming Parade to start. Rollins Street was lined with black and gold balloons from Maryland Avenue to Hitt Street.
